Description

Hello Family!

We are so excited to welcome you to Chicago for our first reunion of the decade!!

In the spirit of history, during this reunion we want to reflect on our past while continuing to build on the traditions that we have established and move forward with new ones. With this in mind, we will be using the African symbol Sankofa bird which looks backward, while the feet are faced forward. Combining Sankofa and the year of 2020 Vision , we are “Looking to Our Past, To Move into Our Future!”

Welcome Reception

World renown for our Deep Dish Pizza, but you also have to try our tasty Italian Beef sandwich dipped with hot peppers, or our Chicago Style Hot Dog which is eaten without a drop of ketchup. And your mouth will water for more of our famous Garrett’s popcorn.
